Nice place to visit

We spent there just couple of hours. It is a big place and to see the whole area would require more time. But in overall it was a nice historical place to visit.

I spent two full days in Penglai. I decided to allot one of those two days for visiting Penglai ge and it was worth the choice. However I have to admit the entrance fee was rather expensive. I spent 140 yuan which I believe to be honestly too much. But from my experience spending quite a lot of bucks to... More

People interested in Buddhist temples would find this attraction interesting, primarily Tao Buddhism. There is an old lighthouse, which i enjoyed seeing, my first in China. Lots of old historic carvings of words and poetry, especially one by SuDongPo, where part of the poem was craved neat and poetic while the rest of the stone was large and almost eligible.... More

Nice historical place, can be quite crowded, it will take pretty much the whole day to finish this place. Entrance fee is required. There are guided tours and buggies (if you pay). You might catch the mirage.

The entrace ticket of Penglaige is quite expensive. But nothing special you can find inside except people squeezing here and there. This place is absolutely not worth for a visit.

This fantastic historical place is well worth spending some hours. There are a lot of history framing the 3 different religions of china, and many good looking statues of the gods. In addition to the various tempels, there are fantastic architecture, so I will recommend walk around and lift your head. Some of the buildings also contains some fantastic art... More

For foreigners, be aware you really need cash to get in to these facilities, however the history is quite amazing and well worth the visit.

A good time to visit is in April or late September when the weather is not so hot. Try to avoid visiting during holiday periods as the crowd and queue for the cable car could be very long. Take a slow walk to appreciate the ancient buildings and the view of PengLai is beautiful on a clear day. The entrance... More

Childhood memory of this famous landmark was quiet and calm, often with no one there but us, however now days due to the over development of tourism sector in general, like most places, can be very busy during the summer holidays, winter can be too cold as the sea often freeze here. Best time to visit will be autumn and... More

We happily spent a few hours walking around the nice gardens and beautiful temples and caught the cable-car to the cliff-walk nearby which was stunning.
